Things are still busy, but I’m hoping to prioritize Day in Washington and make sure to keep everyone up to date on events here in Washington DC. Today’s podcast/blog post is from a guest host on an issue we’ve covered in the past – looking at the public perception of “Death before Disability.” This episode is posted today as it is the anniversary of Dianne Odell’s death one year ago.
Day in Washington Disability Policy Podcast – Episode Summary: Day in Washington looks at disability policy issues both here in the United States and also abroad. This week’s episode is a guest podcast from part-time writer, full-time book junkie N.R. Brown. She discusses her response to recent comments on her local radio about Dianne Odell’s death. She found the statements made by the radio host and the public perception of Dianne’s life as being without value, offensive and she reminds us how prevalent is the belief that death is preferable to living with a disability.
